As Osteopaths we are diagnosticians who take a full case-history and diagnostic tests before performing any technique.
What is the epleys Manouevre?
It is a technique that repositions any dislodged calcium crystals. Many people perform the technique on themselves but it usually better to have a medical professional perform the technique. It is always better to seek professional advise before doing it yourself for the first time, and If a medical professional has not diagnosed BPPV.
Epleys manouevre repositions the “balance crystals“ in the inner ear by changing the position of the head a number of times, so as to nudge the crystals allowing gravity to shift them back into a position.
Feel free to book in a consultation to get a diagnosis and have a Osteopath perform an epleys manouevre on you (if appropriate).
